Digital Work


I am coming along in my newly learned Illustrator skills. Mastering the pen tool is something I have been working hard on for the past few days. I used the pen tool for the vase and then filled it with one of the plaid patterns that I created in my Rachel Taylor class. I also recently purchased a new Pantone swatch fan book since my old ones were at least 15 years old. I love all the new colors!

They also have added a new feature called "Pantone Color Manager" software. It is a separate application that you can download from their web site after you register your new products. It allows you to create palettes from photographs using Pantone colors! I love that feature. I used it to generate this palette.

I am really enjoying working digitally again. Except now I need a new external hard drive since my old one is quite full......oh well small price to pay!

Love the work, and because I have NEVER created digitally it intrigues me greatly . . . but I miss seeing your 'other' work as well, the bud and pods, prints and painting. I checked back through Flickr and can often see those same crisp lines that are dominating your work now.
